Phoenix Window builds and installs our “HIGH EFFICIENCY” storm and screen systems for your vintage windows for leading edge window efficiency. Phoenix Window introduces traditional style wood storm window systems that retain winter warmth, block summer heat, eliminate harmful ultraviolet rays, maximize natural daylight, allow ventilation, and are superior to anything else available for historic wood windows!
Our storm window systems are achieving less than .30 to as low as .20 whole window U-factors when installed over original single pane wood windows, far better than traditional storm windows, as well as most wooden replacement windows. By comparison, a vintage single pane wood window with a traditional wood storm is approximately .60 – .65 whole window U-factor.
